Electrovaya to supply Li-ion SuperPolymer2.0 systems for distributed energy storage project in the UK
14 September 2013
Canada-based Li-ion manufacturer Electrovaya Inc. has received a purchase order from Scottish and Southern Energy Power Distribution (SSEPD) for a distributed energy storage project that will lead to the installation of 25 distributed and independent energy storage systems in a single UK town.
The systems will be composed of Electrovaya’s latest SuperPolymer2.0 technology and will range in energy capacity from 12.5 kWh to more than 80 kWh.
This marks Electrovaya’s first major energy storage project in Europe and further strengthens the company’s smart grid product portfolio, said Dr. Rajshekar DasGupta, VP Business Development.
All the Electrovaya systems are expected to be delivered to SSEPD by mid 2014. The current energy storage project is part of the Thames Valley Vision (TVV) project, a SSEPD project in partnership with other local, national and international businesses. The TVV is a £30-million (US$48 million) project and is part of a £500-million (US$794-million) program funded by the Low Carbon Network Fund (LCNF) run by Ofgem, the UK energy regulator.
